This week we’re diving into the PvP debate, and though it’s a topic we have all covered on our blogs over the course of the years, it has been renewed with issues surrounding ArcheAge. The latest Contains Moderate Peril is sort of a sister show to this one, and they seemed to cover the side of those who don’t really PvP much. We offer the other side of the coin, as all of us have played and enjoy PvP and the dynamics it brings to the table. Welshtroll, whom has been our guest once before rejoined us for the discussion. We all talked about our early PvP experiences, what types of PvP we’re currently participating in, and our opinions on this mode of play. We covered many different community posts in the conversation as well, and you can find links to those below. Enjoy!
